Emergencies

In the case of a fire alarm, the MTCC operates a two-phase alarm system:

Stage 1: Slow beeping sound, alert signal

• Remain calm
• If the alarm is beeping slowly, this is a warning
• Do not evacuate the building at this stage
• Await instructions to be announced over the intercom (this will take approximately one minute) or speak to Security Staff

Stage 2: Fast beeping sound, evacuate signal

• Only evacuate the building if instructed to do so over the intercom or by Security Staff
• Leave the building via the closest emergency stairwell
• Fire exits are highlighted in yellow in the Convention Program floor plan (pages 13 and 14)
• Do not use elevators or escalators
• If you encounter smoke in the stairway, use an alternate exit
• Once outside, stay clear of the building to permit emergency access
• Do not attempt to remove vehicles from parking garages or loading docks
• Do not return until declared safe by the Fire Official
